Unlimited scalability for limited IT budgets

iCAS FS is a scale-out platform for archive, backup and business critical data of all kinds. The software-defined storage platform scales without limits starting at 20 TB and one node, and impresses with low TCO, great ease of use and high flexibility.

Your advantages with iCAS FS

Cost-efficient: 53% cost savings compared to public cloud storage and you retain the control of your data
Scalable: Start small, scale without limits from one node and 20 TB in one software-defined platform
Cloud Experience On-Premises: Enjoy the advantages of the cloud in your own data center - without effort for your IT
Usability: Auto-managed system with zero-touch operation and Managed Services concept

One platform, many use cases

iCAS FS enables future-proof data storage and compliance at a low total cost of ownership. The platform is ideally suited for storing and protecting data from various applications and sources.

 

iCAS FS relieves your primary storage, convinces as a secure backup target and serves equally as an audit-proof archive and scale-out object storage. If large amounts of data are to be stored cost-effectively, securely over the long term and with high availability, iCAS FS is the perfect choice.

Zero-touch operation, Managed Services and integrated monitoring
NFS, SMB, and S3 interface
Multi-tenancy; different repositories for WORM and Non-WORM data
Hardware independence: based on standard hardware and a hardened Linux OS
High availability due to transparent read/write failover and active-active cluster
Synchronous and asynchronous replication for copies in stretched clusters
Ransomware protection thanks to WORM storage, S3 Object Lock and a closed architecture
Audited and certified by KMPG (GDPR, GoBD, ...)

Architecture

So that long-term data storage works like a dream and doesn't turn into a nightmare: What should a system look like in a perfect world?

  • The system does what it is supposed to do: Store and protect data from different sources, and meet all regulatory requirements
  • The system identifies sources of error and fixes them independently
  • You have no touchpoints and no workload with the system
  • The capacity grows in relation to the requirements and can be extended easily and limitlessly
  • The total costs are transparent and low
  • The system is robust, secure, and highly available
  • The architecture is designed for future changes and is independent
  • Investments in software and hardware are protected
  • You can rely on the system and focus on your core business

 

This scenario was the drawing board for the development of iCAS FS. It took us a lot of brainwork, passion, a little bit of cheekiness and many years of experience. We are proud of the result! Convince yourself and turn the perfect world scenario into reality with iCAS FS.

Low total costs (TCO)

The promise of public cloud storage is simple: more agility, ease of use, and low cost. However, investment decisions should not be based on promises, but on facts. That’s why IT analyst and validation firm ESG evaluated the overall costs of storage solutions, comparing the leading public cloud storages with iTernity’s on-premises solution iCAS FS.

 

To get started with iCAS FS you only need a standard Ethernet network and one server. As a software-defined platform, iCAS FS is based on an x86 server with local disks. Further cost savings are realized by the zero-touch operation and Managed Services, as no administration, training or special knowledge is required. You can start small and grow with your actual needs.

What our customers say

Only with iCAS FS we are able to safely store our artworks such as videos, photographs and digitized works. None of the evaluated alternative solutions could guarantee comparable flexibility, performance and security.

High availability

iCAS FS is a scale-out cluster in which the overall performance is provided by a large number of storage server nodes. This modular architecture allows for any expansion of capacity and performance. Thanks to the transparent read/write failover and active-active cluster, iCAS FS offers high availability for archiving your important business data.

 

If one node is not available, data is written to another available node. As soon as the node is available again, the data is automatically synchronized and full redundancy is restored. iCAS FS switches smartly between synchronous and asynchronous replication, depending on the current latency between data centers, and allows stretched clusters over long distances (WAN copy).

Cloud Experience On-Premises

iCAS FS is software-defined. iCAS FS is on-premise. And yet we are talking about a cloud experience. We do this for a very simple reason: iCAS FS is a storage platform with zero-touch operation for the user. The complete setup is automatically monitored, and errors are detected and repaired by the system itself. In addition, the storage capacity can be expanded easily, flexibly, and cost-effectively. In a nutshell: “cloud experience on-premises“ - for high agility and flexibility, user-friendly application, and low total cost.
